Planet Chocolate
Many love chocolate, but there's a lot about the delectable delicacy that we don't know. Coming from a seed once used as money, chocolate is credited with inspiring writers, enhancing the love making of Casanova, and was a special passion of the Marquis de Sade, even while in prison.

The King Of Fruit: Pineapple From The Azores
Columbus is largely credited with "discovering" America, but he was also responsible for bringing the first pineapple—a prize from his exploits in Guadeloupe—to Europe in 1493. Eventually, as the fruit became an exotic symbol of hospitality in European circles, it made its way back to the shores of colonial America as something of a celebrity.

Portugal is known for more than its rocky coastline, impressive hand-painted tiles, and poignant fado music.

Iris Brooks heads out to the countryside to learn more about this tasty queijo.

A Global Guide To Rice
Rice is not your run-of-the-mill food; it’s honored at a variety of rituals throughout Asia. Praised by poets, celebrated in song, and eaten by emperors, rice is a symbol of fertility and the lifeblood of many societies.

Indonesian Peanut Sauce
The peanut is not a nut; it’s technically a legume. And its origins date back to South America—historians suggest Bolivia, Brazil, Peru or Mexico—evidenced in 3,500-year-old Inca pottery.
